Dear faithful friends,
I am going to be taking an extended break from lady lee. Two months at the minimum.
I am feeling like social media has been controlling me more than I have been controlling it and am feeling the need for more good ole brick and mortar living.
Also as you know, I am a full-time Mama, a job which I take very seriously. But I also have to freelance part-time in order to help pay the bills. I have been a bit overwhelmed having to freelance as well as keep up with the work of being a Mama and taking care of home/family/life/wife stuff and so all of this points to a need to simplify and cut back in other areas. And sadly, the blog is the clearest option as one place that I spend a lot of time that I can cut back on. I know I could just post a couple times a week, and I thought about that, but in the end I really just need to get away for a bit. I will be scarce on Twitter & Facebook as well and will be pretty absent from the internet in general.
I'm sad because I feel like I am going to miss out on so much and I know I will MISS YOU GUYS. Your comments and love are so encouraging to me. I'm also bummed because there will be an extended amount of time that I won't have documented, and I love being able to look back. But I know it is the right thing for me to do right now, personally and for my little family.
I'm going to miss you so much. I hope when I come back, refreshed and with a better sense of how to balance all of the things I love in life, you will be here.
